A dreaded first

This morning was the day those of us conscious of seasonal changes dread: The first day we had to scrape frost from the car windshield. It means the gray, cold, icy days of winter are not that far off. What a gloomy thought!

It's especially tough for a baseball fan. Just last night, the New York Mets' opened the National League playoff series with a win. Ah, baseball! The sights, sounds and smells of summer. The freedom to enjoy the great outdoors without layered clothing, a coat, a hat, a scarf. Worrying about getting too much sun should be our greatest concern.

At least we're along the Jersey Shore. We could be in Buffalo, where they've got 24-plus inches of snow to remove. Now that's a real reminder of winter.

Gee Larry, it's a shame that when you're still scraping the frost or snow off the windshield -- spring training will be in full swing here in Scottsdale! Steve & Eva
